Clay Webb

AUSTELL, Ga. – It’s our job at Rivals.com to cut through all the noise and zero in on where the nation’s top players will end up playing their college football. Sometimes when it comes to searching for information, the best intel comes from fellow elite prospects.

At Sunday’s Atlanta stop of the Rivals 3 Stripe Camp Series presented by adidas event, we surveyed several prospects about where four elite prospects will eventually land. Here are the results.

WHY: “I think Clay will go to Alabama because of his relationships with

Pierce Quick


Paul Tyson

.” – Rivals100 OL

Roquan Smith

just left after a successful career.” – 2020 Rivals100 DE
